IntroductionThe Cochise County Treasurer application center provides public access to property tax and other information. The application consists of several applications including Parcel Inquiry, Area Code Rates, Tax Lien Bidder information, Parcel Search by Owner Name and Mailing Address and other information.
Parcel InquiryThe Parcel Inquiry application provides access to parcel property tax information for up to ten years. This information includes a summary of bills, interest, fees, payments, and due amounts for the parcel. In addition, information concerning tax year due details, payment history, applied interest and fee details, valuations, owner history, split history and a future tax bill estimation program. Parcel Inquiry also provides access to several reports including the Tax Bill, Payment Receipts, Tax Statements and Tax Receipts.
Parcel Search by OwnerThe Parcel Search by Owner application provides the ability to search for parcel numbers and information based upon a number of criteria. The user can search by the following options: Owner Name, Mailing Address parts and Tax Year. Note that the mailing address may be different than the actual situs or property address of the parcel. Searching with the tax year entered indicates the results will only return parcels matching the criteria which were taxed during the given tax year.
Once you have entered one or more pieces of search criteria, click the Search Parcels button to search for matching items. The results of the search will be displayed in the grid below the criteria. If no results are found, the message No items to display will be shown in the lower right hand corner of the grid. The grid of results by default will show the first 20 results in the list. To display more items in the grid or to page back and forth through the full results use the arrow options at the bottom of the grid. A maximum of 5000 results will be given for the search even if more results are available.
Clicking a parcel number in the results will open the parcel automatically in a new window in the Parcel Inquiry application. NOTE that Parcel Inquiry will operate on one parcel number at a time regardless of which window or tab it is in. This means that if two windows or tabs are open with two different parcel numbers in parcel inquiry, the last parcel opened will be the parcel that additional clicks in the application will represent. The parcel number displayed in parcel inquiry in the upper left hand side will always reflect the parcel for which the information displayed represents.
The results will include the parcel number, owner name and mailing address details. To export the results, click the Export to CSV button at the top of the grid. This will popup a window to save a generated file which contains the results of the search. The file will be in simple CSV (comma delimited) format which can be opened in any text editor or spreadsheet application such as Excel.
Parcel Search by Property AddressSearching for a parcel number by it's property or situs address is available through the Assessors website. The Search by Property menu item links over the Assessor search website. Once the parcel number has been identified, the user can return to Treasurer Parcel Inquiry application to view property tax information.
Area Code RatesAll Property, Real & Personal, is assigned an Area Code by the Cochise County Assessor. The Tax Area Code identifies what taxing jurisdictions may levy against the property. Each tax jurisdiction within the area code provide a rate that is applied against the net assessed values of the parcel to determine the amount of tax is due to the jurisdiction.
You can find your parcel area code on your tax bill or within the Parcel Inquiry application valuations screen.
Select a Tax Year and Area Code from the options. The list of Area Codes varies based on the tax year selected. Once both options are selected, the rates for the tax year and area code will be shown in the grid below.

The file will be in simple CSV (comma delimited) format which can be opened in any text editor or spreadsheet application such as Excel.
